supporters of the muslim brotherhood this week alone. we go live to martha's vineyard where president obama continues his vacation. any sign from the administration of what they will or even perhaps what they will not do next? >> well, craig, good afternoon. the administration at this point is not signaling any major shift in policy when it comes to egypt. we know that president obama has been briefed daily by his national security adviser susan rice, who is vacationing here on martha's vineyard with him. and of course this past week president obama announced that he would be canceling joint military operations between the u.s. and egypt that were scheduled to take place next month. this was a strong, symbolic rebuke to military for their inability to really get this situation under control in egypt and to get the unrest under control in egypt. but what the administration has not announced is that they will be withholding or withdrawing that $1.3 billion in military aid that they give to egypt every year, and that is really the united states' largest point of leverage at this point in time.
was canceling joint exercises with the egyptian military. tonight on martha's vineyard, the president is wrapping up his vacation. our chief white house correspondent major garrett is there as well. major, the administration urged the military not to resort to violence. it's now continued for four days. why does the administration believe it was ignored? >> the administration believes the egyptian military decided to break the back of the muslim brotherhood once and for all, try to reduce or eliminate its will to protest and resist in the streets. this is a risky short-term strategy, jeff, because it could push egypt closer to a civil war if the muslim brotherhood doesn't back down or others in egypt not aligned with it also turn against the military. the administration believes the military has decided it will not pursue any kind of democratic reforms until it's dealt with the muslim brotherhood. we're in the stages now seeing if that strategy will succeed. one thing administration officials have concluded-- they were powerless to stop this turn of events. >> glor: major, some critic
place. here's our chief global affairs correspondent, martha raddatz. >> reporter: the pictures are gut wrenching. the rebels fighting the regime say these are mothers, fathers, children, killed while they slept in their homes in a damascus suburb. they say the syrian regime fired rockets on its own people. rockets carrying poisonous gas, leaving the innocent convulsing, foaming at the mouth, suffocating. >> i would be very surprised if it turned out to be a fake. >> reporter: images are impossible to verify for certain and the assad regime denies the attack saying allegations are baseless. but we showed the pictures to a weapons expert. >> the only explanation i can really see to this is this looks like this fellow's nerves have been -- are being destroyed potentially by something like sarin. >> reporter: the white house said it is "deeply concerned." but the white house has said that before. almost a year to the day. president obama warning syria about crossing a red line. >> we have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in region that is a red line for us. >> reporter:
. martha raddatz has been tracking the threats that led to the closing. are the embassies opening again now because u.s. officials believe the drone strikes in yemen this week actually got the plotters? >> george, officials say the plotters of this specific plan were not killed in strikes in yemen, but the dead are part of the network of terrorists trying to kill americans. intelligence officials believe the plan was to send a truck bomb into the u.s. embassy there. but a senior u.s. official, that because of the actions taken, the terrorists have likely moved the explosives out of the vehicle and are changing tactics. adding that we think that the imminent threat dissipated, but fear they have gone back to ground waiting for the next opportunity to strike. this immediate threat may have passed, but the threat of terrorism never passed. >> we heard from u.s. officials that tlebl that the nsa surveillance programs helped track this emerging threat. the president announced some reforms on friday in those programs. and had tough words for the nsa leaker edward snowden, said he was not a patrio
the president this week and he was speaking from martha's vineyard he did not mention the aid but did say the u.s. government is canceling its military exercises. is that a big deal or not? it seems like the military is occupied at the moment. and not exactly -- >> right. >> well, this is a biennial exercise so every two years. the last time it was held bright star was in 2009 because in 2011, they also had their hands full with the revolution and couldn't do it. in some ways, you can say it's symbolic and other ways it allows us to understand how the other side works. many countries participate in it. just a slap on the wrist. what's real is if they're considering, for example, they've stopped giving the f-16. they put that on hold. if they decide to stop giving other hardware, if they're not really letting aid flow since july 3, since this ouster, that's the bigger question. and we'll have to see where it goes. if things get worse, they're not going to be able to continue with the policy they have right now. that's my prediction. amy: thank you very much for that. here at home, a decision by
